2018 will be Trig’s seventh year exhibiting at EAA AirVenture. Trig makes the annual trip to the largest airshow of its kind in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.
The show runs from Monday 23th to Sunday 29th July and attracts pilots from all areas of aviation. Warbirds, light sport, experimental, ultralights and GA pilots all gather for a truly unique show.
Trig’s booth will be in the same location as last year, Booth 3130 in Hangar C. Olivia Macfarlane, Trig’s Marketing Executive said, “The team always enjoys AirVenture, it is a brilliant opportunity to meet pilots from around the world. The Trig team are ready to share the latest on our ADS-B solutions and show pilots our TX56A Nav/Com.”
The TX56A and TX57A will be previewed for the first time at EAA AirVenture. Using a slimline form factor, the TX56A will be easy to install and use. At only 1.3” high each unit saves valuable space yet contains an impressive selection of practical features for any pilot.
Trig CEO Andy Davis said, “For many aircraft owners the Nav/Com remains a vital piece of equipment. We are pleased to preview the TX56A at EAA AirVenture– it will make access to certified Nav information widely available. The Nav/Com units will start shipping in early 2019.”
Pilots preparing for 2020 and installing ADS-B Out solutions should think of Trig. The TN72 X is a certified and ADS-B compliant GPS Position Source for experimental and light sport pilots. This separate box weighs only 3.8 ounces and is the obvious upgrade for pilots already flying with a Trig transponder.
Olivia Macfarlane said, “This year at EAA AirVenture, Trig dealers will be offering the TN72 Bundle. This one box bundle contains Trig’s TT22 Mode-S compact transponder, the TN72 X and TA70 antenna. At the EAA show list price of only $2,849, it’s the perfect solution for experimental and light sport pilots looking for full ADS-B 2020 compliance.”
Rick Volker, aerobatic competition pilot, is now flying with Trig equipment. Rick’s routines are a roller coaster of artistry and athleticism. He has recently installed the TN72 bundle into his Sukhoi SU26M and is now ADS-B Out 2020 compliant. Rick said, “I was looking for a compact, lightweight and certified ADS-B solution and Trig was the clear choice. Their products are easy to use, take up minimal panel space and are packed with useful features. I know I can rely on Trig when competing.”
For certified aircraft, Trig’s TT31 Class 1 transponder remains the popular choice for many, it meets TSO-C166b and provides pilots with class leading Mode-S technology. This year Trig launched the ADS-B Express Lane. With the right avionics Trig Express Lane dealers can now install a 2020 solution in as little as 5-8 hours, three times faster than many competitors.
Trig CEO Andy Davis said, “Aircraft owners often overlook the expense of fitting ADS-B, if you have an old KT76A, KT76C or KT78A transponder then a TT31 is a simple slide in replacement. If you also have an existing GTN or GNS WAAS navigator then you qualify as an Express Lane candidate. Trig provides the most compelling and quick upgrade path.” With an AirVenture list price of $ 2,342 the TT31 provides aircraft owners with the best combination of features, quality and value.
A free FAA STC allows the TT31 and TT22 transponder to be installed as a compliant ADS-B Out solution for over 600 aircraft types. Both units are compatible with popular GPS position sources including Garmin GNS and GTN WAAS navigators.
All Trig products are smart, affordable and future proof and come with a two-year warranty, via a network of Approved Trig Dealers.
